The 2021 Song Contest Winners

2022 Contest

3 Grand Prizes

Grand Prize #1

Best Liturgical Song or Hymn

Write a song for people to sing together at Mass to worship God. Try using “We” instead of “I” in your lyrics, a melody that predictably repeats, and something that all levels of singers can join in on.

Grand Prize #2

Best Christian Popular Song

Do you have a song that is more suitable for Christian radio or the stage? Perhaps you have an anthem, an introspective song or one that praises God in a way that is very personal.

Grand Prize #3

Best Secular Song Informed by Faith

This category is for Catholic songwriters who write songs for a wider secular audience, informed by their Catholic faith, with the hope of drawing all people closer to God with great songwriting.
